Better & Cheaper.
THE ROYAL BAKING POWDER is more economical than
other brands because of its greater leavening strength, as
shown by both the U. S. and Canadian Government Reports.
The other baking powders contain from 20 to 80 per cent, less
leavening gets than the ROYAL. So the ROYAL, even should
it cost more than the others, would be much the cheaper.
In addition to this the superior flavor, sweetness, wholcsomc
ness and delicacy of the food raised by ROYAL BAKING
POWDER would make any difference in cost insignificant.
Highest of a!! in leavening strength.
